My name is Alex Buga, I’m from Bucharest, Romania and I am a design-addict - in the good way. (Voices: “Helloooo Aleeeex !”)
I was the Creative Director at MB Dragan, an interactive agency based in Bucharest and I can tell you: It was the most fun place to work at.
I have an over 7 years background in webdesign in which I had the chance to gain experience and meet cool and smart people in great agencies like Kondiment, Firedive Interactive or Baritchi Advertising and MB Dragan.
If you want to work with me or just say hello, just do it
Have a great day,
So maybe you’re wondering what’s with all this stuff thrown in this page ? Well, the concept name of this version is “Alex Buga’s Livingroom”. And in my real livingroom you can find lots of things like my guitar – Squier American Stratocaster, my Native Instruments Maschine – depicted in the Music section, my Leica – because I’m a hobby photographer and I love to shoot film, an iPad for the Portfolio – although I don’t currently own one :D
I really love to inspire my designs from real life objects so that’s why it looks like a real room.
Some people don’t like the Autoscroll (there’s a button to disable it). Some people might not like animations (there’s a button for that too), some people might not like the roulette menu… etc.
But those people must understand this is a designer site, an experimental site. It’s not meant to be usable, viewable in Shiternet Explorer, etc, etc.
This site is meant as an experiment, and I love it. If you don’t – I don’t care. If you do, and want to make a suggestion, I’ll love your feedback.
Hi, long time no see. Well… I’ve been busy. And a little stressed. Oh, blame Twitter for that.
I decided to change some things in my life to lose the stress and I started with my job. Yup, many probably know, many don’t, that starting today I’m no longer Creative Director at MB Dragan. I needed a change of direction, a breath of fresh air from all that clientwork-feedback-clientwork-morefeedback-moreclientrowk stuff.
An opportunity took chance in the first week of 2011 and I’ve decided to take my chances. I’ll cut the bullshit and skip to the point. I didn’t leave for another agency – as a matter of fact I’m still a partner at MB Dragan – I decided to work with Bullguard as an UX Designer. I’m part of a small team of professionals and I’m pretty excited about the cool stuff laying ahead.
The people I’ve met and had the chance to work with at MB Dragan. In 3 and a half years I had the pleasure to share my second home with a bunch of the most wicked, creative, crazy dudes & dudettes a person can wish for. They were funny – way to funny, dude –, hardworking and good teammates, and most of all my second family.
I’ll miss you guys! Dizzu, Maria, Cezara, Flori, Boar, Alex, Cristi and the rest of the gang !!!
I hope our paths will cross somehow in the future, but until then our food paths will surely cross at lunch !
Stay hungry, stay foolish!
